The Howard County 4-H program holds a sponsorship drive as an annual request for funds to support and maintain its 4-H program.

The funds are used to cover costs of trips, scholarships, program promotion, training and awards (including trophies). Sponsorship is divided into four levels: Champion — $1,001 and more; Reserve Champion — $501 to $1,000; Honor — $251 to $500; and Blue — 250 and less.

All sponsors, in return for their contributions, are recognized at all major events and in publications, which may include the county fair, project summary and Purdue Extension annual meeting.

Additionally, donors are listed on the back of a T-shirt provided to all 4-Hers and volunteers to acknowledge sponsor contributions toward making the 4-H program a success.

Anyone interested in donating may contact the Howard County Extension Office at 765-456-2313.
